hi,thanks for query.The drug is given because the torch test is positive indicating toxoplasmosis.Presence of this disease itself can lead to abortion,so your doctor has given this drug for treatment.This drug do have side effects and need to be used with caution in pregnancy after calculating the risk benefit ratio.Do not worry,your doctor is best person who can think of your benefit.

wishing you all the best for time to come.
